Description This workshop will provide several short lecture series consisting two or three lectures each to introduce postdocs, graduate students and non-experts to some of the major themes of the conference.  While the precise topics  may change to reflect developments in the area, it is likely that we will run mini-series in the following subjects:

  • Noncommutative algebraic geometry
  • D-Module Theory
  • Derived Categories
  • Noncommutative Resolutions of Singularities
  • Deformation-Quantization
  • Symplectic Reflection Algebras
  • Growth Functions of Infinite Dimensional Algebras

Jason Bell (Simon Fraser University)
David Ben-Zvi (University of Texas)
Ragnar Buchweitz (University of Toronto)
Maria Chlouveraki (University of Edinburgh)
Vasily Dolgushev (Temple University)
Graham Leuschke (Syracuse University)
Mathilde Marcolli (California Institute of Technology)
Paul Smith (University of Washington)
